The variability of bone traits was assessed in purebred lines of meat-type chickens using dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry. Experiment 1 evaluated changes in bone mineralization and size traits of the tibia and humerus in 4 purebred lines from 6 to 24 wk of age. Experiment 2 compared the same traits of the tibia, radius, and ulna of 9 purebred lines at 6 wk of age. Differences in bone traits among purebred lines were apparent in both experiments. Of the 4 purebred lines compared in experiment 1… CONTINUE READING
